The new partnership allows for a direct integration between the two platforms, smoothing out the entire inventory and delivery management process.
Businesses who need to manage inventory, ecommerce listing and delivery of products to customers using their own vehicles will particularly benefit from the integration.

"We are excited about integrating Veeqo with STREAM," said Dave Pickburn, Director at STREAM developer Proximity. "Businesses who need to manage inventory, ecommerce listing and deliver products to customers with their own vehicles will particularly benefit from the integration of Veeqo".
Matt Warren, CEO and Founder at Veeqo added, "Our mission at Veeqo is to become the best possible platform for retailers to grow their business. This integration with STREAM provides a brand new way for people using our software to get their products delivered to their customers all over the UK."
Multi-carrier shipping system Shippo is now providing direct access to the US Postal Service via their ePostage program.
The USPS does not offer an open, public API for purchasing USPS shipping labels. Since 1999 the USPS has worked with only three technology partners (Pitney Bowes, Endicia and Stamps.com) to provide public access to postage. Now through the new USPS ePostage program, Shippo has become the first new company in 18 years to enable all businesses to access USPS shipping services online.
ePostage is a new program developed by the USPS to accommodate the growth of ecommerce. While Amazon and Etsy have been using ePostage for their own USPS integrations, Shippo is the first and only company to make ePostage available to any business.
Writing on the company's blog, Shippo CEO Laura Behrens Wu said, "We worked with the USPS to make ePostage available publicly because we recognize that shipping is no longer just a 'back-room operation.' Shipping is a competitive advantage, tying together the online and offline experience. However, businesses of all sizes are still finding it difficult to successfully manage their shipping operations, citing the process to be time-consuming, expensive, and often confusing."
"Shippo provides a straightforward integration to the USPS, and a global network of carriers, in one integration. Our API and dashboard provides a full lifecycle solution for businesses at any stage. Now through ePostage, Shippo can guarantee businesses even better uptime, stability, speed, and scalability for USPS services. We've helped over 10,000 businesses around the world, ranging from small-business owners to enterprise platforms."
Shippo provides a multi-carrier shipping API to online retailers, technology providers and other businesses.
